Players are expected to participate in a positive and respectful manner both on and off the field/court.
Players should respect all parties (including teammates, opponents,
officials, scorekeepers and coaches) at all times. Particular attention
should be paid toward honoring referees’ decisions. In every way
(voice, action and gesture), players should strive to cooperate with
officials. Players should also act as helpful and respectful hosts at
home games and considerate guests at away matches. Examples of
respectful behavior off the court include greeting opposing players,
cleaning up after themselves, and taking good care of equipment and
facilities. Cheering or complimenting good play (even an opponent’s!),
giving assistance to a fallen player, and behaving thoughtfully in both
victory and defeat are on court examples.
